Fabulous Blogger Friday + a SALE!!

Happy Friday Friends,
I'm back after a little unwinding today for another edition of Fabulous Blogger Friday!! Today I am featuring...

 from Always a Lesson
Always A Lesson
Grade or Subject You Teach?
3rd grade  (Ive taught 2nd, 3rd for 4 years and 5th)

What inspired you to become a teacher?
My fourth grade teacher Ms. Lofy made me realize learning can be fun. Since that day, I knew it was my dream job!

Describe your teaching "personality":
Stricter (darn those high expectations!), personable (I love to share stories that relate to the kids), and a bit sarcastic (hey, it keeps their attention!)

What is your favorite subject to teach?
Literacy... it just has so many facets I can get creative without being burnt out.

What made you decide to begin blogging? 
Through grad school and the National board process I got used to writing and reflecting. I started following blogs and decided I wanted to try my own! (I just reached my first milestone of 50 followers!!)

If you could give one piece of advice to your fellow teachers & bloggers, what would it be?
Be yourself!! Don't worry about the latest fads. Teachers: do what is best for your class at that specific time. Trust in yourself. Bloggers: Get creative and have fun! Who cares if you are the only one reading your posts- the process of writing is making you a better teacher and person so do not worry about your following. It will come as you continue to show who you are.

Finish this sentence: You know you're a teacher when:
You know you are a teacher when you refer to your students as your "kids," and people around you begin wondering how early you started having your 20+ children!! :)

Any personal links you would like to share with readers (TPT, TN, Pinterest, Etsy)?
